Doğramacizade Ali Sami Pasha Mosque

The Doğramacızade Ali Sami Pasha Mosque is one of the most respected mosques in Ankara. The mosque, located in Bilkent District of Çankaya district, attracts the attention of local visitors all the time. It is stated that this mosque was built by Ihsan Doğramacı. He preferred to build the mosque in the name of his father Ali Sami Pasha at that time. The Ali Sami Pasha Mosque is not open for worship today. The most important feature of this place is that it is the first technological mosque in Turkey. This feature gives the mosque a tourist identity. Erkut Şahinbaş is one of the talented figures of his field. Today, this place hosts many concerts, picture galleries or seminars. Serving as a kind of worship and cultural center, the seminary halls of this quirky mosque are converted to a church or synagogue form, depending on future demands. Doğramacızade Ali Sami Pasha Mosque , which caters to three different heavenly religions, is built on a 50-acre land. The mosque, whose construction has been going on for two years, has no historical identity. The interior sections of the mosque are predominantly covered in wood. The venue, which is famous for its technological infrastructure, is inaugurated in 2008. The fact that its construction cost an astronomical figure of $ 15 million creates a lot of controversy at a time. Ihsan Doğramacı will attend the opening in person. When you arrive here in your private car, you can use the parking area of the mosque. Intelligent building systems are applied in the architecture of the mosque. Especially the lighting, ventilation and heating systems, are admired. These systems are automatically activated according to the hours of the adhan. When Ihsan Doğramacı passed away in 2010, a mausoleum was created in the rear section of the mosque. Ihsan Doğramacı is the founder of Hacettepe University.
